  • Gangbusters! Tropical Hideout/Hangout

    "The Listing description didn't include the aloha spirit that is part of Upcountry Maui. The photos reflecting the rental's appearance are right on!......Including the cat with a Namaste sign in the background. The property is clean and well maintained - gardeners and maintenance folks seemed to be always doing something helpful. There was always someone on hand to answer questions. The fun town of Paia is either 4 minutes down the hill (if you're 13 years old or 15 of you're 65). The grocery store, Mana, local eateries, the shave ice lady's place are all favorites for our family. I'd soooooo recommend this place!"

  • Charming place

    "We had a great time here. Loved the location, and the house is such a charming place. We loved watching the turtles in the water, and even spotted a few whales off in the distance. And the views from the upstairs bedrooms can't be beat. Highly recommend for anyone looking to stay in Paia."

  • Close walk to town!

    "Staying at the Hale Nihi was a good experience. It is a short walk right into Paia Town and close to the road to Hana. They were very accommodating to our late arrival. There was a nice basket full of breakfast goodies on the table for the morning. I would say the only drawback of this place is that it is a little noisy but that's to be expected when you are staying so close to town."

  • Super

    "The location is just super, very close to Paia, to Hookipa and to Mama’s fish house… The apartment has everything you need, with a private outdoor space where you can have fantastic breakfast and barbecue. The apartment is located in a very private area where the access is guaranteed only through a code access and the car can be parked just right next the apartment. For surfers this is really the perfect location.. We were not able to meet Michael but the check-in was so easy and everything was so perfect at our arrival. Michael was always available on the phone. Grazie Michel.. if we will come back in Maui… for sure we will love to stay at your place again"

Paia Travel Tips

Experience Small Town Hawaii with Paia Vacation Rentals

Paia is a tiny town of about 3,000 residents on the north side of the island of Maui, in the Hawaiian Islands. The fact that Paia is so quiet and tiny is what makes this small town a fabulous travel destination for vacationers who truly want the rest and quiet that can only be found in a tropical paradise. Paia was once a cane plantation, but now it's just a few streets of tourist shops nested among villas, all next to a beautiful white sandy beach. If you're looking to stay there, upcountry Maui cottages and plantation-style Paia villas are available through Vacation Rentals by Owner.

Lodging in the Windsurfing Capital of the World

Paia is known as the windsurfing capital of the world. The shores of northern Maui provide plenty of wind power for windsurfers, and annual competitions are held there. For a tiny town, it's even pulled in some big names. United States Senator John Kerry likes to vacation there and practice his windsurfing hobby. And singer Willy Nelson likes to eat at the local restaurant, 'The Fish Market,' when he's on the island. Paia is only about 20 miles northest of Kahului Airport, which connects to Oahu.

Staying Upcountry Maui with Vacation Rentals by Owner

A vacation rental is an arrangement in which an owner of a private property rents her property to a vacationer. For example, a vacationer in Maui could get to stay in an upcountry Maui villa, and cut costs by having extra members of their party, and cooking meals in the villa's full kitchen, instead of eating takeout. The small, cozy villas of Paia also give visitors to the town an intimate experience; you can stay in someone's home, like a local, instead of in a large hotel. Some upcountry Maui cottages are even right on the beach.
